***Yes, I DO realize it is no longer Friday….this was originally started on ‘a’ Friday & I DO realize Mr. Linky will no longer be available on Mrs.4444’s site but my original intention was meant for linkage to her and I refuse to change my title ;) SO…
Half Past Kissin' Time...
What a crazy busy couple of weeks we have had! I am starting this weeks fragments back to
last the Thursday of May 7th. I KNOW I said I would post this yesterday a couple of weeks ago … I was busy squeezing in my work hours so I could be right here where I sit right now.
I am sitting in – well, got interrupted! I WAS sitting in the room waiting for them to bring Roo back to me. We started at 4:30 this morning (with me only sleeping 3 1/2 hours). Roo had to get tubes in his ears…and under anesthesia! So, while under they needed to do a special hearing screening called ABR (auditory brainstem response). They hook electrodes to his head that reads if he can hear the different pitches.
On the plus side both went relatively well. Roo was fussy during the 1 1/2 hour wait we had in an over-crowded waiting room. He just figured that if I was gonna wake him up way too early and bring him into this crowd of strangers then the least I could do was comfort him with a bottle. Sorry, dude, no can do!
He was a tad bit fussy coming out of the anesthesia too!
But then …
…he’s happy with his blow up doll! that Daddy made for him. How did Daddy know this would make any male happy? LOL
Ok, so maybe Daddy only blew up the rubber glove…I think it might’ve been Mommy that drew the beautiful features. (I think he’s actually drooling over her…hehe)
Ok…on with the party!! Now that, yet another, week has gone by since I originally started this post!
Gah, I had a BLAST!! So, this was Mother’s Day weekend, right? The MNO for Oklahoma bloggers? Wish you could’ve been there with us!
So, here are my main gal-pals!
We had so much fun and it was awesome to make new friends! There were at least 60 women bloggers gettin their gab on at Hideaway Pizza in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the National MNO (Mom’s Night Out). Talk about a LOT of talking going on and meeting new friends. It was impossible to meet everyone (I wish I had met more!) but it was awesome to meet the ones I did! I’m just hoping this can become an annual thing and I can meet more next time!
…. and new found friends!
As you can see I got especially attached to my new friend over at Decisionally Challenged… she is so sweet and cracked me up! So, I decided I should show her just how much and ‘lick’ her ear…only my special friends get that privilege!
….we sat at the Kool Kids table!
(I was there…I AM a kool kid, I swear! I was taking the pic!)
Now, 5 of our 7 from our table were lucky enough to win door prizes…yea! for them… boo for me…obviously I was NOT one of those 5 – durnit!! I did win the best gift of all though….I got to go have all this fun and finally have a little ME time out while knowing my boys were taken care of! Hubby had kept the two older boys (back at home) while my mom kept the baby (she conveniently lives IN Tulsa where the party was).
The wieners….I mean WINNERS!
Baloney ....................... Diversions .................... Dear (w/Crow)
Princess ................................ Southern ............................... Crow
Well, Princess & Southern did not sit at our table but both were good to meet! Princess was kind enough to be our photographer everytime we wanted a ‘group’ pic. She did very well at juggling all the different cameras. And, Southern, I didn’t get the chance to talk to a lot but I always follow her twitters and she has the biggest heart…always trying to help & comfort when others when they twitter about a tough situation.
One of the very first MNO Bloggers I met that night…..
Do you see that the material on our tops match? Isn’t she beautiful? She was the sweetest thang eva! All bubbly and cute as a bug! (she admitted she wasn’t really from Oklahoma but that’s ok, I’m really glad Texas wasn’t having a bloggers MNO or I would’ve never been able to meet her in real life)
Now, I want to share with you what ‘funny baloney’ is like…
Thank you all, you beautiful ladies, for sharing such a fun evening with moi!!
….and unlike THESE ladies who left the party early (shame on them….ROFL)
Diversions and Froggy (which kidnapped me) had to drag me away from my IRL adult without child conversations!! In case you were concerned or ever wondered if your parents were right when they said they did not worry about you because they knew whoever kidnapped you would bring you back….well, they did! Took me right back home to my Mommy, just like she said they would!
Thanks ladies….I love you too!! LOL I cannot wait till next year!
